Swampfire by Patricia Cecil Haas, TK2870, 1st Scholastic paperback printing, 1974, 187 pages. Illustrated by Charles Robinson.

DESCRIPTION: “‘Swampfire!’ It was a perfect name for the great, beautiful horse. Sally, Robin, and Andrew had discovered in the marshes. But now, the name means a raging fire which can destroy everything and everyone in the swamp.
Here at last is Sally’s chance to ride the beautiful ghost-horse in the swamp. Can she do it- and rescue the trapped victims?” (from the back cover)


About vintagescholastics

I love these old Scholastics! I am a bookseller, writer, and dog-lover; live at the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains of New York with my computer-programmer husband. We love motor-cycle riding, renovating our old camp on Lake Desolation, gardening, and researching our genealogy. The purpose of this blog is to highlight those beloved old books from the Scholastic Book fairs from 1950 - 1979. This will serve as a catalogue of the books, with their identifying numbers, a plot summary, and a photo of the cover; with a searchable index. I want to give all of the writers and illustrator's bios so they get credit (many were writers in the summer while on vacation from their regular schoolteaching jobs.; some are lesser known efforts by very famous people; and some are reprinted classics.) Hopefully, their fans will be able to identify favorite titles with snipets of remembered information. We will always be adding new ones, and welcome your submissions
